Gelish mini Ocean Wave and L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Top Coat in Confetti aka The Sparklicious

Ride the wave of made-you-look blue nail polish for summer 2013. Our four favourites include this opaque, in-your-face crystalline blue.

In seven days of wear, this mani's male/female compliment ratio = a solid 1:1. It's Gelish Mini Soak-Off Gel Polish in Ocean Wave ($14.95, sallybeauty.com) -- with a couple of coats of L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Top Coat in Confetti, aka The Sparklicious ($7.99, drugstores and mass retailers). This top coat is going super-sonic. If you see it, buy it, STAT. You can thank me later. (Kids love it too; see Sparklicious kiddie manis here.)

Avon Cosmic Nail Enamel in Galaxy

Such a pretty holographic for summer. When the light hits it, it's so sparkly, it makes me dizzy. From the Avon Celestial Summer Collection 2013, Avon Cosmic Nail Enamel in Galaxy ($6, avon.ca).

Clinique Nail Enamel in Splish Splash

Created with sensitive skin in mind, this royal blue jelly polish brings more compliments from dudes than from ladies. True story. Clinique A Different Nail Enamel in Splish Splash (limited edition, $14, clinique.com). By the way, if you haven't tried a Clinique polish yet, you should -- it's good stuff.

Nicole by OPI in Blue-Berry Sweet On You

A matte texture polish that dries quickly and requires no top coat, this looks like blue sugar. Who doesn't like sugar? From the limited-edition Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Collection coming in August 2013, Nicole by OPI in Blue-Berry Sweet on You ($11, nicolebyopi.com).
